    Run ADWCleaner on your system, restart when it says to. After doing so test the game, if it still has an issue reinstall once more.

    You have a messed up set of drivers that Nvidia released. You need to update your graphics driver from Nvidia. If you are not sure how to do so, follow the info here http://hopper.minecraft.net/help/pixel-format-not-accelerated/support/#dxdiag

    You may need to reinstall the locally installed files that Minecraft puts into place. To do so, press your Windows+R keys, type in %AppData% at the dialog, and press Enter. In the window that appears, open the .minecraft directory, and delete everything except for the saves directory that you see therein. Then, try running Minecraft again.

    posted a message on Buying a server to host from (not a minecraft server but a server to host a minecraft servers from)

    Real server hardware really does not fit into the price range you initially set. Unless you plan on using it for things other than Minecraft servers, you don't need a rackmount because you wont have the need to fill it. Ignoring the fact that the motherboard you listed wont work with the CPU you listed, you would have spent your entire budget on those two parts. And yes, no matter what the machine is, you always need CPU cooling. While your SSD may not need to be big. A 1TB drive would not be enough. Running a small single server, I used to fill 1TB worth of backups in about a month.


    With your budget you would be better off doing what the other members have suggested. Rent a server through a host. This way you can scale if needed without having buy or change hardware on your own.

    Remove -Xmx256M in the _JAVA_OPTIONS variable in your environment settings;

    1. Press the Windows key and the Pause/Break key simultaneously
    2. A window should popup, click on "Advanced system settings"
    3. Click on "Environment Variables"
    4. Delete the _JAVA_OPTIONS entry.

    You said in a previous message you said you followed those instructions, did you ever find an -Xmx256m setting there? If so was it removed? Was there ever one in the Java settings you send the screenshot of. Because based on your earlier ingame screens of the F3 menu, that setting should have been somewhere.

    Is it the same in the System tab of that same setting window? And as the other user instructed, did you ever find an Xmx argument anywhere in the Environment Varialbes?

    Did you ever find an extra JVM argument in the Environment Variables or Java settings?

    Crash reports are found in the crash-reports folder under the .minecraft folder.



    The launcher_log text file will have more info than the one generated in the launchers output window. Most of the crashes that only result in the info provided by the OP won't generate anything to the crash-reports folder.

    As previously mentioned, you will probably pay less and get more if you put one together on your own. One of the most important things to remember is that Minecraft and the server don't directly benefit from multi-core CPU's so its ideal to look for one with good single core speed/performance. However if you plan to host multiple servers on the same machine, with virtualization you can make use of a multi-core CPU by using virtualization to have each server running on a different core. Keeping all that in mind, you will need to balance the speed/core-count/price for the CPU. Some CPU's don't support virtualization so make sure whatever you choose does.


    If you plan to virtualize, which will kinda be required if you want to successfully run multiple server instances on the same machine without issues, you will need a decent amount of RAM. This way you can allocate enough to each server on each virtual machine.


    You will want a fast type of storage drive for the running the active worlds and servers. Currently the fastest option for this is an NVME SSD, on either an m.2 slot or directly on a PCIe slot. However if that gets too expensive, a regular SATA based SSD will do fine for the most part. You will also wan't a standard mechanical hard drive for backup and overflow storage. Possibly even a duplicate physical drive to set up in a RAID so you have backups of your backups.


    The server itself won't need a powerful graphics card for running a Minecraft server. If the CPU you decide on has an integrated graphics processor that will be fine for what you need. Some of the more powerful or server specific CPU's don't have this, so you would need some sort of basic graphics card for the simple purpose of using a display on the machine.


    If you can find anything like this online, you should be good. If you think you can build something that meets those suggestions, even better. Keep in mind server specific hardware will pretty much be out of your price range. Look for decent consumer level hardware that has everything you need. Feel free to ask if you need more info on a specific issue, but if none of that makes sense to you, it may be too soon to jump into hosting on your own.

    posted a message on MINECRAFT WONT LAUNCH PLEASE HELP ME

    I can't think of a simple way to do it that wouldn't also end up causing the same problem. You could keep both users and point shortcuts for most things back to the other user folder. Just don't point anything Minecraft (or any other Java related things) to the user files from the one that initially had the ! in it. Anything outside the the user folder, like programs installed to Program Files, should be directly accessible to the new user. The only thin you would need to worry about is stuff that resides in your C:\Users\'OLDUSERNAME' folder. AppData being there is the main reason this is a problem for Minecraft.
